9 Perfect Peanut Recipes

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy

I know a family who has a child with a peanut allergy. No nuts for them—except for one week each year when this kiddo heads off to camp. Then the whole rest of the family eats all the peanuts for a week before sanitizing the house in time for their child to come home. I was reminded of them when I found a jar of peanuts in my pantry the other day, and I was inspired to see what I could do with it. Here are nine peanut recipes to try.

Homemade Peanut Butter

Homemade Peanut Butter
Did you know that it takes about five minutes to make peanut butter in a food processor? Seriously. You’ll wonder why you’ve been buying it from the store.

Kung Pao Chicken

Kung Pao Chicken
Kung pao chicken is my husband’s favorite thing to order when we get Chinese takeout. My daughter’s not a big fan because “it’s spicy,” so when making this for your family, feel free to play with the amount of spicy ingredients to get them just right for you.

Slow Cooker Thai Peanut Chicken

Slow Cooker Thai Peanut Chicken
Alright, this one might be cheating a little bit because the main ingredient is actually peanut butter and the nuts are an optional garnish. I just had to include it though, because I love Thai peanut chicken! And who doesn’t love an easy slow cooker meal?

VIRGINIA PEANUT SOUP AND OLD TOWN ALEXANDRIA

Crunchy Chicken-Peanut Chopped Salad Recipe

Crunchy Chicken-Peanut Chopped Salad Recipe
Rather like a homemade Lunchable being tastier than the store-bought variety, this chopped salad is way better than the bagged version. Although, it’s just as easy when tossed with deli chicken!
